General Settings

Clicking on General Settings will allow you to edit course-specific settings.

For most settings, the platform will have descriptions that explain what they affect. The most important ones are covered below.

Course Active: This setting determines whether it is visible to Learners. If it is turned off, the course will be hidden. This allows you to deprecate old content while still maintaining your course records.

Course Certificate: If you want your course to award learners with a certificate of completion at the end, enable this option. If you have uploaded a custom certificate, you will have the option to choose which one you want to award.

Certificate Validity Length: This feature will re-enrol learners into the course after the specified amount of time has elapsed. This is used for scheduling recurring training, such as compliance or safety courses.

Early Re-Enrollment Window: To prevent certificates elapsing, you can use this setting to re-enrol learners into the course early. For example, learners will be re-enrolled into the course two weeks before their Validity Length expires if you enter 14.

Course End/Start Date: These determine when learners can first access the content and when the course is due.

Course Length in Days: Similar to Course Start Date. If both are enabled at the same time, the Start Date will take precedence.

Enrollable From a Web Link: This setting will enable a link that users can access to enrol themselves in the course. You will be asked to choose a Subscribe Key. This is the password that users will have to enter in order to successfully register. If you want to have the key pre-filled, simply append &key=mykey to the end of the URL and replace mykey with your chosen Subscribe Key.
